Meet Dr. Pat Buchar

Making a Change to Natural Healing

Dr. Pat attended Eastern Illinois University in Charleston, Illinois, earning a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology and Sports Studies with a minor in Business Administration. He worked in the business world for a couple of years before realizing that he wasn’t fulfilling his passion.

With an interest in health, science, fitness and nutrition, Dr. Pat gravitated toward the chiropractic profession. He saw his brother, already a chiropractor, assisting patients in making positive life changes, and knew he wanted to do the same. The decision was made, and he enrolled at Life University to earn his Doctor of Chiropractic. “I wanted to use a holistic approach to help people.” During his years at chiropractic college, Dr. Pat learned about the innate ability of each individual to heal themselves once the interference (subluxation) that causes disease is removed.

Taking a Comprehensive Approach to Health

It was also while attending Life that Dr. Pat became involved with Maximized Living®. This all-encompassing system, designed to transform the way healthcare is delivered, focuses on The Five Essentials™ of health:

  • Maximized Mind™
  • Maximized Nerve Supply™
  • Maximized Quality Nutrition™
  • Maximized Oxygen and Lean Muscle™
  • Minimized Toxins™

Dr. Pat has completed extensive training with Maximized Living as well as in numerous other areas through regular continuing education courses. “My greatest success is changing people’s lives and seeing them be able to stop taking medications. We love seeing positive improvement, particularly with those conditions that people may not immediately associate with chiropractic.”

Enjoying an Active Life in Paradise

In his spare time, Dr. Pat likes playing sports, working out at the gym with friends and anything that’s beach related. He’s the youngest of four children, including his brother Dr. Bill Buchar and two sisters. Dr. Pat believes that everyone deserves an opportunity to experience optimal health through a properly functioning spine and nervous system free of subluxation and its devastating effects.
